About Me

I live with my girlfriend in a one-room apartment in Stockholm. Studying Arabic and Middle Eastern and North African history.

This semester, I am studying Arabic in Cairo.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Have slept on a lot of different couches, and had a lot of people sleeping on mine. Sometimes it's been through Couchsurfing, but not always. I have surfed using CS in Denmark, Italy, Greece, Turkey and Egypt!


Organizing awesome events with awesome people, community work, refugee and asylum rights, making art, reading, using words, music, cooking, baking, languages, board games, climbing trees, slow travelling, making something out of nothing. Hanging out with family and friends!

Music, Movies, and Books

When it comes to films I enjoy musicals, documentaries and drama... My favorite authors of fiction are Jeanette Winterson and Zadie Smith. I also love children's books...

When it comes to music: old soul and funk, hip-hop, folk music, blues, jazz, pop, rock, etc!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Canoeing and camping along rivers in the American Midwest and Southwest. Hiking mountains of Sweden and Norway... Ski-trips... Amazing social and environmental projects, social centers and squats in Western Europe. Hitchhiking Germany-Italy and then up to Sweden and travelling the land way from Sweden to Egypt...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can make good food out of any ole scraps in your refrigerator! I can whip together a bread dough or baked sweets. I love to share interesting conversations. I can introduce you to anarchism, feminism, participatory economics (parecon), anti-hierarchical meeting techniques. I'm interested in people, culture, art, music, etc!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook or bake, or draw your portrait!
